Back in the streets of Jalan Ipoh, I was introduce to this little shop located around the area that this Bak Kut Teh Restaurant Son In stall used to operate on a 3 wheel hawker cart back in 15 years ago, with many people drive from far just to eat this stall and used to wait for hours that operate from 11pm onwards. Now they have move into a shop that Ken highly recommend me this place if were looking for nice pork stew soy sauce with Bak Kut Teh along as he had been one of the loyal customers for many many years.
The shop might not be pack with people but what I was told by Ken that he had tried all the Bak Kut Teh shop in this road and by far this shop offer one of the best. This stall use traditional method of cooking by using herbs to cook along with the pork ribs unlike others use only cabbage, mushroom, bean curd and others.
One of their signature is the ‘Oily Rice’ that must not to be miss, very fragrance with pig oil yet eat along with Bak Kut Teh is just something you do not want to miss out. I ended up having 3 bowls of this.
Then I order what they have and to start off with is ‘Bak Kut Teh’ Soup base with a mixture of all pork types and I love it with herbs taste on the soup base which is suits to my liking. The intestine and pork ribs all are soft, by dipping it with my mixture of dark soy sauce, chili and garlic is something I enjoy. This serve 1 pax.
The best of all that you must not miss in this shop is their ‘Soy Sauce Stew Pork’, soft pork meat with even layer of fats in between, if you eat the sauce like that is quite salty but eat along with oily rice is just a perfect combo. This serve one pax as we order bigger portion of 4 pax. Just finish within minutes.
*This usually sells out pretty quick and it is advisable to go there early to enjoy the best part of it. (it is quite salty)
I have forgoten what name it is called but it was cook along with chinese wine, ginger and bak kut teh soup base. Some people might not get used to the taste of strong chinese wine and ginger taste but to me, I feel its pretty unique in taste that turns out to be quite good. Have to eat it while it is hot.
In the end of the meal, we were very satisfied as I have been to this place couple of times already and total damage for 2 person cost RM 38 which is pretty reasonable.
